AUTUMN WH MEET FRI 10TH/12TH NOVEMBER

I'd just like to echo previous posts, and say a big thank you to Michelle & Jim for arranging the latest meet.
Perfect location, some fantastic hills, great company and plenty of laughs (a fair few at my own expense :wink: ).

Yes, losing the car keys was initially a bit a nightmare, but in reality it was all just a short term inconvenience.
No-one got injured, no-one received the news they had an incurable disease, and no-one had to deal with someone they love, never again returning home.
In the grand scheme of things, this was just a little reminder to keep focussed on the important things in life.
I lost time & I lost money, but I still got home to my beautiful wife & my 2 precious boys. Life is all good.

I had countless offers of help and support, and I'll never remember them all, so....
To everyone who offered / helped me out: Thank you, so much. There were all genuinely appreciated.

A couple of special mentions:
Jonathan, thanks for doing the double run in the car, to pick Parminder and myself up.
Parminder & George, thank you both for changing your plans, and for hanging around so patiently on the Sunday.

And, just for the record (re: quiz night)....

Massive thanks and congratulations (for both the superb successful organisation and the hotline to the weather gods) to Michelle and Jim for such an enjoyable meet - my first official one: great venue, great hills, great weather, great to meet so many WH folk I only knew from reports, and great to meet again folk I started to get to know at Mountainstar's unofficial Snowdonia meet at the end of September.

Just how wrong can the forecasters be...???!!!
